The critically acclaimed Indie title Terraria released recently on XBLA and PSN.

Terraria is often referred to as the “2D Minecraft” and, while this description is accurate, it has certain negative connotations. Though Terraria has many similarities to Minecraft, its differences are what make it worth playing.

For instance, the enemies in the game are both unique and diverse. From goblins and demons to giant worms and floating eyeballs, there is always some new monstrosity to encounter. The game also features NPCs that arrive at your house after certain conditions are met or a boss is defeated. These NPCs can aid you in a variety of ways by acting as merchants, wizards or nurses.

See for yourself in the trailer below and be sure to download the trial before you purchase anything and see if it’s your type of game.

If you like Minecraft, you will love Terraria.
